Saturday, 4:15pm – 4:45pm Diamond Stage

Formed in 1990 and was the first all Asian women taiko group in Canada. The group has performed in a variety of music festivals and other cultural and community events across Canada and the USA. Most of the pieces performed by Sawagi Taiko are composed or arranged by its members who, in addition to their taiko experience bring other artistic skills to the group, such as movement and voice. With diverse experiences as Asians, the members of Sawagi Taiko explore their cultural roots through taiko. In performance, Sawagi Taiko presents an image of Asian women as strong and powerful.
